Rockstar Games has released the highly anticipated GTA VI trailer ahead of its original schedule after a now-suspended account posted a low-quality version of the trailer on X.
The trailer confirms a 2025 release window without an actual release date, and Rockstar Games also announced in a separate press release that GTA VI is coming to the PS5, and Xbox Series X|S in the same year. Surprisingly, no PC was mentioned as part of the platforms, but it is presumed the game will come to the PC later.
It has been a long time waiting for GTA VI, over a decade since GTA V was first released. The trailer confirms a Vice City setting for GTA VI and a female protagonist, named Lucia. “Grand Theft Auto VI continues our efforts to push the limits of what’s possible in highly immersive, story-driven open-world experiences,” Founder of Rockstar Games, Sam Houser said in a press release. “We’re thrilled to be able to share this new vision with players everywhere.”
The trailer features Instagram-style live-streaming which confirms a modern-day setting unlike 2002’s Grand Theft Auto: Vice City that’s set in the 80s. “Grand Theft Auto VI heads to the state of Leonida, home to the neon-soaked streets of Vice City and beyond in the biggest, most immersive evolution of the Grand Theft Auto series yet,” Rockstar says.
GTA VI is expected to be one of the biggest games ever. Its predecessor GTA V has sold more than 190 million units to date, making it the second-best-selling video of all time, behind Microsoft’s Minecraft.
